My company does a lot of work where the actual work itself is the same, but it's repeated in various locations. I'd like to be able to create a template of an Epic and its associated Stories and then mass duplicate all the issues. A bonus would be the ability to determine how many times I duplicate the issues.
I just installed the JIRA Issue Template Plug-in hoping that would do the trick, but so far no luck.
Any suggestions would be welcome!
I know there is a feature request here that has been around for a while for this very option, i would vote and watch that. You might try Clone Plus to see if it would do this as well. I have used it in the past to clone parents and subtasks, just not sure if it works for Epics on down.
I hope that helps.
I've approached this a couple different ways in the past.
If your needs are pretty straightforward, you could create a .CSV file with all the relevant information and use JIRA's native CSV importer. Any time you need to bulk-create, just use the same template file.
If you have to perform complex actions like carry over attachments or link new issues to existing issues then ClonePlus or a solution like Power Scripts makes more sense.
